Do you have a closet or cupboard full of plastic shopping bags? Keep meaning to take them back to the store to recycle but never actually getting around to it? Do you feel guilty anytime you throw them in the garbage knowing they will never disintegrate and will pollute the earth? Looking to meet new people and socialize while also giving back to your community?
If you answered yes to any of these questions then we have a workshop for you!
Join Michele Penn on the first Monday and/or second Thursday of each month to learn how to crochet sleeping mats for the homeless out of used plastic grocery and shopping bags. From bags to beds, Michele will teach you the steps to create ‘plarn’ (plastic yarn) and how to crochet this ‘plarn’ into sleeping mats that will then be distributed to the homeless within our community.
Check out this video to see what inspired Michele to start doing this locally: https://youtu.be/hU3uBCgMaNA.
